    New set-up new lights

    Day 80, First one down Skunk (fimmed) not a clue about the weight (dried)!

    It's clearly a calcium/magnesium deficiency, I've never encountered this before using HPS + photo's but I was warned about this with fast auto-flowers + cobs. Although I've added some CANNA Mono calcium/magnesium during this run maybe not enough. Here stages of events calcium/magnesium deficiency Upper leaf issues show spotting first Yellow, brown spots appear on leaf and tips Lower leaves curl and twist Never the less I am going to harvest coming weekend (10 weeks)!

    Hi forum, I've noticed some deficiencies looking at the leaves, I would like to know what it could be! I have a fair idea but would like a second opinion. But I'm not to worried as harvest is approaching....

    Day 57 still going (photo is overexposed, refers to a white-looking or washed-out image like this!) Compare to Day 29

    Hi, Indeed I don't smoke that much but more important don't have to care for 12 ladies as in my old set-up. It's so much easier now done in 10 minutes. Will do 2 or 3 runs a year as before only one to supply my needs.

    Still a few weeks to go, I can only compare this run with my old set-up but it's comparing apples to oranges (or any other fruit): Auto-flower vs Photo's Hps vs Cobs As I see it now the flower development is a bit attenuate, diaphanous, sheer, slender, slim, spare, twiggy and weedy. But hey it's my first run and already know i have to make a few adjustments regarding: Light intensity (Cobs to close) Day/night cycle (20/4 hrs to 18/6 hrs) Water management (to little/dry) Grtx Rain

    Just planted a Blumat digital tensiometer, I should have 2 more but can't find them after demolishing my big grow room, that's where I used them for years! For me it was dead handy a good indicator of what was going on even now as lifting a pot is difficult to feel the weight. Between 90 - 120 mbar was perfect but have a new set-up smaller pots, different lights and hardly no heat. Time will tell... How does a tensiometer work? The soil moisture can easily be measured via suction pressure. This tension arises because plants, absorb water from the soil against the suction power of the soil. With a tensiometer you measure the suction force in which the water in the soil is retained. Because the suction force causes underpressure in the tube of the meter, you can read the voltage from the display. This number represents the minimum suction force that the roots must exert to absorb water from the ground. Grtx Rain

    Hi, Using the Cobs for the first time (just ordered 3x3500K). I'm growing indoors for 30 years now and this would be the first time I don't have to worry about high temperatures (I hope:). Still a conservative grower and not totally convinced regarding auto flowers. In my opinion what we grow needs time to develop and it will affect the yield, taste and high! So as soon as I have my Cobs will set up a old fashion grow without the fancy stuff ..! Starting a new build as my old set-up is broken down due to renovations of my property also down-scaling! Air is coming from the bottom front of the wardrobe channeled behind the storage compartment passing the tube heaters (and this is light tide). Due to no heat coming of the lights I suspect I have to add some heat into the wardrobe to reach the preferred temperature. Normally the silencer goes behind the fan now it have it in front to damping the electrical hum coming from the extractor fan... And it works reduced the hum about 60% of what it was without. It's really silent... My Cob wardrobe is almost ready only some small things to do like the mounting 2 fans on a rail so they can move up and down. Have 2 tube heaters if the temp, goes to low when the lights are off. Will need to calibrate the wardrobe and dial it all in for the best, temperature and have to seal the doors as it like to be light tide. Installed a fan controller able to set temperature and * low speed. My attic is vented and exhaust is going out. Air intake can be mixed or (outdoors (summer)) or (indoors (winter)) (all filtered) Just an observation, I've ordered 3 x 3500 K (flower red) and 1 x 6500 K cobs (veg blue) You can clearly see the difference in color after color correction in PS (photo below) Dropped 2 x Skunk autoflower Ten days later Made 2 telescopic aluminium rods to support the PVC coated wire mesh panel, adjustable in height without using screws/nails. Topped right Lady left one is 3 or 4 days behind Here some shots More updates will follow soon... Grtx Growboy AKA Rainmain, Raincheck

    Mr. Goodfellow, Your answer "400 watt" is incorrect! Hint: grams per year * lasting stash / grams per watt = ?

    Re-Vegging (rejuvenation) Cannabis? "Re-vegging" cannabis is what happens anytime you take a cannabis plant in the flowering (budding) stage and revert it back to the vegetative stage. Cannabis plants that are re-vegging can display strange stretchy growth and often grow round leaves with no serrations. All of my chopped ladies are moved into the garden and doing exceptionally well, I will try to keep a few and move them indoors during the winter to see what they will do next season move them out during spring! Re-pot, fresh soil and prune the roots find a good/safe spot indoors for their "hibernation" (I have one big pest called Bradley (American Pit Bull Terrier (APBT) he loves his greens) It's worth trying I think. Will read-up on this and see what's the best way to create an immortal lady('s) Anyone did tried this? Quiz Oh yeah... almost forgot to tell on average I’ll smoke 1 gram a week (or less) so that’s 52 grams a year, dry and almost cured I harvested a stash that will last me for 13.5 years (including popcorn) (so do your math ) that's 0.58 gr per watt (oops!!! not even close to the ideal 1 gr per watt ) So my question is what is my total watts used for this grow? 150 watt 250 watt 300 watt 400 watt 500 watt 600 watt 800 watt 1200 watt And what to do with the waste? (it’s dried as well)
